Radial basis function (RBF) has been found useful for solving coupled sine-Gordon equation with initial and boundary conditions. Though this approach produces moderate accuracy in a larger domain, it requires more grid points. In the present study, we develop an alternative numerical scheme for solving one-dimensional coupled sine-Gordon equation to improve accuracy and to reduce grid points. To achieve these objectives, we make use of a wavelet scheme and solve coupled sine-Gordon equation. Based on the numerical results from the wavelet-based scheme, we conclude that our proposed method is more efficient than the radial basic function method in terms of accuracy.
